Potbelly headed to Midtown, in the old Danny's space
The Danny's sign, at the northeast corner of Charles and Biddle streets, was a familiar sight for northbound motorists (September 19, 2012)
The location, at the northeast corner of Charles and Biddle streets, is the southern anchor of a ground-level retail strip that already includes a Starbucks, Chipotle and Tutti Frutti.
The address, 1201 N. Charles St., was the longtime home of Danny's, a fine dining restaurant that flourished in the 1960s and 1970s. The corner building has been remodeled and no remnants remain of Danny's, inside or out.
Final details are still to be worked out, the Baltimore Business Journal says. If Potbelly does move in, there would be eight locations in the Baltimore area for the Chicago-based franchise, which began in 1977 in a small antique store that offered homemade sandwiches to its customers.
